Subway Flasher Caught
Remember that guy on Flickr? He's been caught.
The newspaper ran Ms. Nguyen's cellphone picture on its front page on Aug. 27, along with a story identifying the man as the owner of a local restaurant specializing in raw foods. According to a subsequent Daily News story, five women later contacted police and said they had been flashed on the subway by the man in the picture. Dan Hoyt was arraigned in criminal court in New York on Sept. 1 on four counts of lewd behaviour, and was released on $5,000 (U.S.) bail posted by his business partner and former wife. If convicted, he faces up to three months in jail.
The article also goes on to talk about this:
Subways also played a role in another recent incident of cellphone vigilantism in South Korea in June, in which a woman was photographed after she refused to clean up after her dog on a subway. This snapshot was also posted to a number of blogs, at which point the woman -- who was later identified by acquaintances -- became known as "Dog Poop Girl." But, many people criticized her treatment as a "witch hunt."
I dunno... is it a 'Witch Hunt' when it actually catches a witch?
